Crosswalk of the 2014 Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals and the Essential Public Health Services Now Available 
 
Development of tools and resources to support use of the Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals (Core Competencies) continues with this week's release of a crosswalk of the 2014 Core Competencies and the 10 Essential Public Health Services (Essential Services). Originally created to map the 2010 version of the Core Competencies with the Essential Services, the crosswalk illustrates the relationships between the individual competencies within the Core Competencies and the Essential Services and has now been updated to align with the 2014 version of the Core Competencies. This mapping was done to ensure that the Core Competencies help build the skills necessary for the delivery of these services, and the crosswalk can be used by public health organizations and professionals to determine which of the competencies support each service. Further information about the Core Competencies and related tools and resources can be found at phf.org/aboutcorecompetencies, and questions may be sent to Janelle Nichols at jnichols@phf.org.
 

Activities of the Council on Linkages Between Academia and Public Health Practice are supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
